Bryan Building, Fort Lauderdale

Bryan Building, Fort Lauderdale

The Bryan Building was one of the first 20th Century buildings of downtown Fort Lauderdale. Rebuilt in fire-proof-brick after a devastating fire in 1912, it has since been preserved in its original state with few changes. Designed by architect Tom Bryan, it once operated as the “De Soto” hotel, today it serves as an office building. Now listed in the US National Register of Historic Places.
